Pantone is the world’s expert leader in color. They have been in business since 1963 when they developed their original color standardization fan booklet. Starting in 1999, a committee at Pantone Inc. has chosen a “color of the year” for the following year. Following their impressive choices from the last decade and a half, Pantone has chosen Marsala as the Pantone 2015 Color of the Year. Marsala is a seductive shade of red-brown. While Marsala gets it’s name from a rich red wine, it’s earthy red-brown accents give it a humanizing earthiness. This well-chosen color will allow you to turn any old room into a modern romance scene.
